About Akshata Chitnis : Akshata comes from a unique trans-disciplinary design background with deep-rooted knowledge across behavioural psychology, product design, gamification, interaction design, emerging technologies (AR & VR) and systems thinking. Her diverse background has helped her become one of the youngest Masters candidates at the prestigious Royal College of Art at the age of 21. She has an outstanding past record of excelling as a Valedictorian in her Bachelors of Design course. Her passion for user psychology has led her to publishing her critically acclaimed research paper with Springer Nature on designing sustainable well-being services in India. She has won several international awards for her college projects along with acknowledgements for participating in studies with Harvard and Maker’s Asylum UNESCO. Her work experiences have helped her further build sensitivity in the fields of Fin-tech, health and well-being, rural business and social enterprises. She hopes to work towards societal impact and development, channelised by her process of embedding within communities that allows her to design with empathy and empowerment at the forefront.
STATEMENT OF ART:
I believe, Design is to facilitate the act of raising ambition, within your team, organization, users and stakeholders to co-create a ladder of impact.
I like to practice the key to mould into roles of a researcher, thinker, facilitator, creator and strategist throughout a design process; to be able to visualize challenges at each step, align teams towards future goals and create value.
My principles and values I practice through my work are
- Be humble to create an environment that facilitates change and enables the users to take decisions.
- Have the empathy to embed within your user’s psychology.
- Explore range of possibilities across disciples to constantly challenge your way of thinking.
